Refresh & Revive Again with Hana Saotome from £385

  • Tilton House Firle BN8 6LL (map)


Nestled underneath the South Downs and edged by woodland with far reaching views across the Sussex Weald, Tilton House sits impressively in the natural landscape. The Georgian country house was once home to economist John Maynard Keynes and ballerina Lydia Lopokova as their retreat for contemplation and calm. An ideal setting for a rejuvenating and recharging Yoga Retreat. As well as the daily Yoga and relaxation schedule, there will be plenty of time for refreshing walks along the stunning South Downs.

Tilton House has been reviewed in the following articles:

All 7 bedrooms were decorated using natural materials. Every room has plenty of character and all have views over either the Sussex Weald or Downs. The garden has many mature trees, you could sling one of the many hammocks and relax to the sound of birdsong. For the more energetic there is a tennis court hidden behind a row of ash trees. The firepit in a woodland clearing provides the perfect setting for spinning yarns and stargazing as night closes in.
